Hi, how can I open a new browser window from clicking a button in the applet?

If you want to keep your applet running and launch the URL in a new browser window, you can use this:
appletContext.showDocument(new URL(destURL), "_blank");
where appletContext is your AppletContext

Hi, I do the above, and it works fine, but is there a way to monitor when the new page is closed, and also can it be set to not have buttons, status etc, like a frame.
I know you can use,y,etc,etc) to set this up as a javascript call, but can it been done from an applet. alternative, can the 'window' remove the buttons, as it can resize with window.resizeTo(x,y).
I agree. Here's the link:
